TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
I voluntarily received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
I did want to like this story. We have Marley (Pagan) whose gone to live with her filthy rich grandparents. But still would like to hold a job (she doesn't need it). There we are introduced to Wyatt, who has no friends. An alcoholic mother and he takes care of his sisters. Suddenly they are attracted to each other. There's this instant connection with them but I didn't feel it.
The writing style is a bit over descriptive. Everything seemed to be in real detail, when I like less detail. I'd rather use my imagination. This was a struggle to get through. This is the authors first book and I see potential. I didn't believe Marley's character at all. For someone who wants to make money for herself, accepts a super expensive new car from her grandpa ? Why not get like a Toyota?
The ending was a shocking one and didn't see it coming. But I'm really unsure if I'll attempt the second. I think overall it was ok and it could have been better. Though, I know this was not for me. I think many will love this story.
